It’s Post-Christmas Pie Day Friday! A.k.a Boxing Day, a.k.a let’s just go with the pie because what even is “Boxing Day?” Someone in Britain made it up I think? I just know it has literally nothing to do with boxing. So.
Lemon Meringue Tart! This feels right for today.
(FYI, in the realm of Pie Day Friday, tarts are fair game. Thank goodness).
This lemon number is extra tart and creamy, with a sweet cap of smooth, torched meringue. (It’s the torched meringue that gets people ooh-ing and ahh-ing, yknow?)
There are three main components/steps to get this thing up and running (into my/your mouth): crust, curd, and the aforementioned meringue. Crust is easy (and, if you want to, you can use store-bought — I won’t tell). Lemon curd is simply a matter of gentle heat, steady stirring, and then straining through a fine sieve. And meringue? A hearty whip whip whip and we’re pretty much there!
Can’t you see this beauty going down smooth with a little bubbly, and wow-ing everyone on New Year’s Eve? I can see it. The end of 2014 is going to be tart and sweet and great. Cheers to 2015!
